My husband and I got married when we were just 19 years old. Over the years, especially in the first couple of years of marriage, we received a lot of advice. Some advice was good, some not so good. These are the tips we have found work really well for our marriage, but of course you need to figure out what works well for yours!
One of my favorite things to do is just sit and talk with my husband. It can be easy to get caught up in the busyness of day to day life and not really talk to your spouse. Ask them about how their day went and take interest in the things going on in their life. Communication is so important with tough conversations too. If something is bothering you, don’t let it bottle up, but talk to your partner about it.
2. Put each other first.
Your spouse should even come before your children. Your kids are only at home for a season and when they move out, your spouse will be the one there. Putting your spouse first doesn’t diminish the love you have for your children,
